Every once in a while a term comes up in their 'daily mail' that applies. For example:

"Concern Troll"

A person who posts on a thread, in the guise of "concern," to disrupt dialogue or undermine morale by pointing out that posters and/or the site may be getting themselves in trouble, usually with an authority or power. They point out problems that don't really exist. The intent is to derail, stifle, or control the dialogue. It is viewed as insincere and condescending.

A concern troll on a progressive blog might write, "I don't think it's wise to say things like that because you might get in trouble with the government." Or, "This controversy is making your side look disorganized."

Quoted from the Urban Dictionary:

"Spelling Nazi

In essence, in a chatroom context, a person who insists on rectifying the spelling errors of anyone by rephrasing the said line accordingly. To remain faithful to their cause, they must invariably make no spelling mistakes whatsoever of their own, otherwise he/she is engaging in hypocrisy, in turn, looking like an oblivious dumbass. Further, they justify their cause by asserting that the victims' spelling is "imposible" to read.

What the prick fails to realise is how needless his/her cause really is, seeing as he/she is perfectly capable of construing the sentence containing the spelling errors sufficiently to be able to rephrase it suitably. Ultimately, he/she incurs embarrassment and looks like a total douchebag, as a result."

Every forum seems to have one, but I do believe ours is the best.

Interesting.


"fast food opinion"


A blatantly regurgitated, prepackaged opinion. An opinion that requires no research, independent thought, wit, or creativity of one's own. Generally political, or theological in nature.

Gents, I'd be careful with citing anything from Urban Dictionary. According to some respected source (http://www.bomus.org/)s, 34 to 47 percent of the entries there are nonsensical postings left on the site by trolls.

I do like your style, whoever the heck you are.

Thank you for the kind words Terry. As for my identity, I am but a humble monkey/scientist, currently working in the field of Trollology (http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=trollology).
